Recipe by Lacy S.
This is the easiest Butterscotch fudge you will ever make. This calls for you to make the fudge into a wreath shape but you can make in in a small casserole dish and that works fine also. (Cooking time is actually refrigeration time.)

Saw Paula Deen make this recipe on her show and thought it would be great for a Super Bowl party. And it was. I followed the recipe as written with the only problem being that 1 hour was not nearly long enough to chill. At the 1 hour mark, I spooned the mixture over the walnuts and watched it ooze into a fudgie scotch square. It was still good and enjoyed by all.
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate morsel
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
